The dual islands of St. Kitts & Nevis are one of the newest islands to enter the world of tourism, which means for visitors we get the joy of discovering relatively "new" islands, unscathed by mass tourism and filled with a number of friendly, not-yet-jaded islanders, eager to share their country with you. Although Columbus discovered this mountainous and small islands, naming the largest after himself, the country has a long history. Until recently, sugar was the No. 1 industry of the island (now it's tourism), and Thomas Jefferson's family owned sugar plantations on St. Kitts while Alexander Hamilton's family operated plantations on neighboring Nevis, where he was born.

From mountainous rainforests to stretches of sugar-soft beaches, the islands beckon families for both exploration and R&R. As newer hospitality islands, here vacationers are referred to as "travelers" as opposed to "tourists," in a laid-back, casual Caribbean atmosphere.
